PostSubject: Cold Air or Short Ram Intake Better For Wisconsins Wet Weather   Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:15 pm

I own a mazda 3 and am looking at getting an air intake. I want to get a cold air intake for the performance but am nervous of hydrolock in wisconsins wet weather. If you have a cold air intake, have you had problems? What brands are better. i am looking at a fujita f5.

I have a turboXS CAI on my speed3 and I drive it in all kinds of weather, all winter and through the spring rain. I don't even have my splash shield on and I've never had an issue. I also don't drive through puddles and stay out of boost when its wet, not to mention it has a K&N filter on the end of it.

Also, you gotta post an intro dude.

If you edit signature under profile (along the top) you can put an image in the format of [img] URL address here [\img] only use a forward slash instead of backwards.

You shouldnt have to worry too much about hydrolocking if your careful. You can always make some sort of splash guard as well. Mine is down being my foglight and have never had an issue with any water.

I run a cold air intake that just barely tucks in the top of the fender. it has a heat shield and dropped my IAT by over 15 degrees. Some of them can go pretty far down and run a higher risk of sucking in water. Worst case, you could always get a hydro sock that prevents water from passing through. Cold air will generally have better performance gains than a short ram.

I ran a CAI on my Sentra... don't drive through a lake and you'll be fine.

I have had trouble recently with water fouling out my MAF sensor. I am running a AEM dryflow filter and it gets saturated with water very quickly. I am going to buy a K&N again here shortly.

I have the Mazdaspeed (brand, not off Mazdaspeed 6) CAI. It has a splash guard that came with it, also the factory "splash" aka underbody shielding protects it as well. I haven't had any problems thus far.

If you are going with the cold air set up I have seen these and thought it was a WIN for sure. http://www.extremepsi.com/store/customer/search.php?veh=1G+DSM&cat=259&type=Miscellaneous

You hook it up in a dry area and if you get the filter soaking wet the engine can still breathe.

I have a COBB SRI and no problems. Any puddles or rain hasn't hurt at all even in boost. Not as much power gains as a cai though.

I've been told that these are no good for forced induction vehicles, can anyone confirm this? I know nothing about said subject lol.

I don't think you would ever need anything that extreme. Just avoid puddles. I have a turboxs CAI with a K&N filter and no splash guard and it's never an issue.
